No lbw reviews in England-India series

1:08 pm on 21 July 2011

The International Cricket Council says there will be no reviews of lbw decisions during the forthcoming England-India Test and one-day series.

Indian concerns over the reliability of ball-tracking technology meant the ICC was unable to get adopt universal adoption of the full decision review system for all international matches at a recent meeting.

Now, there will be no HawkEye predictive tracking system for lbws in the four-Test and five-match one-day series although 'Hot Spot' imaging technology and stump microphone audio will be able to help the on-field umpires with caught decisions.

ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat says while they're disappointed that ball tracking won't be used at least there will be a minimum system.

And Lorgat says there'll be an urgent review to independently confirm the accuracy of ball-tracking technology.
